Top Weekend Destinations in Washington

Washingtonians are lucky. They’re surrounded by beautiful scenery and wonderful cities, and amazing getaways that you can make it to without missing any school or work.

Taking Advantage of Weekends to Travel is very hard sometimes, so check out these ideas so you know exactly what and where you should go.


Orcas Island


Orcas Island, out in the San Juan Islands, is a tranquil spot perfect for anyone in Washington to make it to for a full weekend of fun, whether you have kids or not.




The Nines

Portland is the largest city in Oregon. If you need a weekend destination but don’t want to head out to the dark, scary natural world, then take to this metropolitan getaway.


Cannon Beach


I’m still dreaming of Haystack Rock. In the winter, it’s like what you see above. Dark but beautiful. In the summer, its pretty good too. Much more green.




During October, Leavenworth is the best place to go. This bavarian village holds the best Oktoberfest. In summer, you can have the best hiking trips. In winter, the best ski trips. Just the best, all year round!


Lake Crescent


Tucked away inside Olympic National Park is Lake Crescent Lodge, a perfect couples getaway. You can row, swim, cruise, board, relax, sleep and have so much fun.



Rainbow Falls

Probably the only ‘roughin it’ getaway listed here, Stehekin is an amazing place to just get away from it all. Waterfalls, rivers, adventure and fun make it a pull.


All of you Washingtonians, make it a goal to visit all of these in 2018, (If you haven’t already.)
